Exclusively at Sanderson London, artist Richie Culver will be showcasing ‘The Four Letter Word’, a series of works created for his recent solo show in Norway throughout Frieze Art Fair, housed in the luxurious fantasy world of Sanderson.
The title of the exhibition “The Four Letter Word” – as with much of Culver’s work that involve text, is open to interpretation, allowing the viewer to draw their own conclusions. Culver explains: “Words and writing are really important to me. There are many four letter words, some foul some beautiful. I’ve tried to look at some of the many different meanings in the pieces in the show. Love has always played a strong role in many of my works, as well as the darker aspects of life found around us.”
On exhibiting his show at Sanderson, Richie comments “Being able to display my latest series in the witty and artistic setting of Sanderson, is a great opportunity to bring art to a new space and audience in the heart of Central London.”
The photographic works featured in this show see a key development in the medium that is very new to the artist. Exploring and developing this technique, experimenting with exposure and movement, Culver has created images for this exhibition that are almost animated. The photographs in this series stem from a decidedly kinetic place, without a defined beginning or end, almost painting with light until he finds the composition and story that he has been searching for.
